Lemon Garlic Tilapia with Spinach
- Total: 35 min
- Prep: 20 min
- Cook: 15 min
- Yield: 4 servings
4 5-ounce tilapia fillets
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup dry white wine
Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon, plus wedges for serving
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 5-ounce package baby spinach (about 8 cups)
- Pat the tilapia dry with paper towels, then season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper. Spread the flour on a plate; dredge the tilapia in the flour, tapping off the excess. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tilapia and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate; tent with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the skillet.
- Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in the skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until it starts browning, about 2 minutes. Add the chicken broth, wine, and lemon zest and juice. Increase the heat to high, bring to a boil and cook until the liquid is reduced by half, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Add the butter and whisk until slightly thickened, about 1 minute; stir in the parsley.
- Meanwhile, toss the spinach with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and a few grinds of pepper. Divide among plates, top with the fish, and drizzle with some pan sauce. Serve with lemon wedges.
